What Defines Chinese Culture?

Like most cultures in the world, Chinese culture is a mixture of many indigenous and foreign philosophies and religions over the past three thousand years. Each of these influences could use a book to illustrate. This short compilation, however, intends to list a few main forces that shape present Chinese culture, which guides the Chinese people's daily activities in China and overseas. (Click the following links for a 5-minute video touch on these fundamental ideas that guide more than a billion people.)

  • Confucianism, the core value of family.
  • Daoism, the harmony between human beings and nature.
  • Buddhism, the human suffering and the truth of the world.
  • Christianity, a surprising rise in China.
